I prefer this option.

I would like to see an _informational_ RFC describing the trust models
currently in use.  Trust models should not be part of OpenPGP because I
fear that we would end up like PKIX by trying to unify the demands of
many different parties.



p.s.  I wrote and maintain most parts of GnuPG (which includes a
complete PKIX implementation in addition to OpenPGP).

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
